We’ve come a long way in terms of PC gaming monitors in just 10 years. For a decade now, displays have been based on LED. Most were large boxy suits with plastic mounts. Fast forward to today as Corsair unveiled its 45-inch bendable Xeneon Flex monitor at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.
The Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is a 45-inch main screen with a resolution of 3440 x 1440. But what’s even more impressive is that if you want to convert your screen from a flat screen to a curved screen, you simply bend it!
Make no mistake, this screen is huge. It features an insane aspect ratio of 21:9 that delivers cinema-wide viewing space. This is beyond a super fast screen. We’re not even sure what aspect ratio category the Xeneon Flex entered, but it made us salivate.
Pair it with a 240Hz refresh rate and LG OLED technology, and we’ve got a massive screen that’s 1,000 nits of brightness without sweating it out. That could mean it’s an HDR capable panel, too. Of course, it’s also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync standards to avoid screen tearing.
Then there is the fold.
This screen can be bent. You can keep it as a flat screen monitor for watching movies or playing strategy games, but when you need to immerse yourself in a Battle Royale FPS, you can simply grab the sides and pull it towards you. It can be bent over the 800R curve.
Corsair has always been a gaming enthusiast, and has introduced products like the Xeneon 32UHD144 monitor, the K70 Mini wireless gaming keyboard and of course, gaming headsets. But Fremont, California just dropped the world’s first bendable screen, and now we want one.
Corsair will release availability and pricing details about the Xeneon Flex Monitor later this year.
